Twin River hawks casino plan

February 8, 2011

LINCOLN – Twin River opened a new campaign to win full casino operations Tuesday night with a state-of-business address by the chairman of its Board of Directors, John E. Taylor, during the Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce’s annual dinner at the redeveloped former greyhound park facility.
Taylor gave his pitch for a statewide referendum on Twin River’s expansion to full casino gaming after Gov. Lincoln Chafee spoke briefly to the gathering and said he was “looking forward” to working with Taylor in the future “to make sure this facility stays viable.”

Success is difficult to define in high school

Some things I think I think:
It was nice to see North Smithfield’s Corinne Coia gain some local recognition for her productive basketball career at Lincoln School. The 6-foot-4 senior, who has signed a letter of intent to play for the University of Rhode Island, scored 25 points on Monday night and now has 1,019 points in her career. She passed 1,000 career rebounds earlier this season.

February 8, 2011

WOONSOCKET – In her freshman year of high school swimming last winter for Cumberland High, all Courtney Kent did was win a state title. Kent shocked the field by capturing the 500-yard freestyle with an impressive time of 5 minutes, 6.45 seconds at the Tootel Aquatic Center at URI.
What does the tenth-grader expect to do for the encore?
How about cop two individual titles at the Feb. 19 state championship and possibly break a state record by a certain U.S. Olympian, who makes Rhode Island her home.

MSC girls hoop teams defeats Tolman

February 8, 2011

WOONSOCKET — When the first half finished, Tammy Drape crouched down and just stared at the court for about 30 seconds. If the court was made of dirt, the Tolman High coach would have probably dug a hole and buried herself inside.
It was that frustrating.
The Tigers picked the wrong time to have one of their worst offensive showings of the season. Facing first-place Mount St. Charles Academy on Monday night, Tolman went into a massive scoring drought in the initial half and could never quite recover as the Mounties rolled to a 43-28 rout in their Division II-North contest.
